My first Apple laptop was the MacBook Air which I bought about 5 years ago, and it introduced to me what Apple was all about. The design, the quality, and the superb blend of useful features made me a convert from the Windows world and I never looked back since. Everything from the great keyboard, excellent trackpad, a list of useful ports (especially MAGSAFE), I couldn't really criticize the Air in anyway. But one thing slowly kept nagging me about the MacBook Air over time. The screen. The screen was passable back in the day when the Air released but in the past couple of years it's just crap, especially compared to literally everything else with a screen that's been released. I avoided using my MacBook Air just because of the low quality screen and the strain it put on my eyes from reading things on it. Now I was in a dilemma, should I just suck it up and keep using the Air even though it worked perfectly fine? Or should I upgrade? Upgrade I did, eventually. After many trips to Best Buy and testing out Apple's MacBook and new MacBook Pro's, I always left with disappointment. Apple's new Macbook's/Pro's are a downgrade to the MacBook Air in almost every-way. From the keyboard, to the trackpad (because of its monstrous size), to the I/O, all of the Air's positive and useful features were scrapped. One step forward, three steps back, yikes. A laptop's fundamental and most important features are its keyboard, its trackpad, and its ports. For these reasons, even the Air still passes with flying colours to this day. Now there was only one option left for me, get the last, greatest MacBook Apple ever released. The 2015 MacBook Pro. After spending a considerable amount of time researching on getting a great deal, I finally picked up the 2015 MacBook Pro, and I absolutely love it. It's an upgrade to the Air in many ways and it's money well spent. I thought the weight difference would be noticeable between the two, but it really isn't. That force touch trackpad is wizardry, I can't go back to mechanical trackpads now. And that screen, finally. This is what I wanted. I've now seen the light. TLDR; OP had a long relationship with the MacBook Air and loved it very much, but because of one major issue with it that kept on bothering him (its face), OP broke up with the MacBook Air and is now in bed with the 2015 MacBook Pro and couldn't be happier.
